Typically reaching a maximum of 10-12m high, Mobile Access Towers are built with a cross-beamed vertical structure providing a stronger base and load-bearing capability than a standard ladder. With this additional structural strength, heavier equipment and tools can be taken to work at height. As a result, workers using the towers are safer and can work for longer, thanks to the sturdy framework.
